I have posted the link on my FB page, Wattpad and in Wattpad Restricted group on FB. I hope some of my 2000 plus wattpad friends on FB and 200 plus fans on Wattpad will sign.

I am an avid reader of erotica and I believe the writers need to be acknowledged for their work. Please add an erotica section so that readers can find such stories easier. Thank you.

I think that it would be great if rated r stuff on wattpad was made visible becuase I like to read rated r material and can never find it.

I feel that R-Rated stories should be allowed in the watty awards because the authors who write the stories, make amazing books and I love to read them :)

I love some of the R-rated stories I read; they are realistic, descriptive and like any other story you read. It doesn't make sense for them to be shunned for merely being R-rated so this petition is a great, much needed idea! :D

We need a mature section so we can read the adult books!! And make it so the younger children on wattpad can read it.. This will make it adult only..



Apr 26, 2012, 00:08

Unfortunately I don't think they will listen. Wattpad doesn't seem interested in helping writers any more, they have lost their spark. Sad, but true :(

Although wattpad has a "duty" to protect younger readers from unsuitable content for their age, it is ultimately the responsibility of parents to know what their children are viewing. Just because a store sells rat poison, it doesn't mean it should be sold to little children. I know that if wattpad were to and to acknowledge the rated r category, it would be tasteful and nor smut. Please consider this improvement.

They're a lot of good mature writers on wattpad and I think its only fair that they have a section to showcase their work. I am a reader on wattpad and enjoy an adult book so I agree with this petition

The age range... 15 and up? I think... Cuz if u think about rated R movies, you hav to be 17... But 16 is the age of driving, your an adult to do that.... And then u think about 15.... The youngest we should go, it's a highschool age... What do you think?...

I love that someone started this petition and sincerely hope it'll help get the Powers That Be of Wattpad to take the Rated-R writers and readers seriously, enabling us all the same perks and capabilities as the non-Rated-Rs!



Apr 26, 2012, 05:12

I agree!



Apr 26, 2012, 05:33

it doesn't seem fair that the R rated writers have to miss out on the Watty Awards. Not all R rated stories are erotica and there should be an R rated catagory... as for underage readers the site asks you for your date of birth when creating an account so maybe some sort of restricion should automatically be put in place when enyone under 18 cant access the supposed "undesired" content. It's just a thought and it would make things fairer to the rest of us!

this subject needed to be brought up, wattpad seriously needs to add a section for the Mature writers of wattpad.



Apr 26, 2012, 08:04

please do vote!

I have read many mature writer stories and they were amazing and i belive that they should be aloud to be included in the watty awards and be able to be looked for aswell

I didn't know Wattpad made such restrictions on R rated stories, but now it makes sense why the middle story in a PG-13 series of mine (which Wattpad rated R, not myself) was often missed by readers. I had no idea Wattpad was blocking it and will happily sign this petition if it means making more work more visible.

I think it's ridiculous they want to disable us from writing rated r books. The majority of people on wattpad are real writers who have potential and a passion to write and telling them they can't write the books they love is just plain ridiculous.
